With much of the United States suffering record temperatures this summer, spending a long weekend, or much needed vacation in Chincoteague can give you a place to cool off, relax and replenish. This year on our little island, Chincoteague, home of the world renowned Assateague Island Pony Swim, has been voted the number one beach town in the United States. There is plenty to do on our vanilla bean shaped peninsula off the coast of Virginia, in addition to splashing in the surf. Chincoteague Island is an outdoor and wildlife enthusiast’s paradise.
The historic 1848 Island Manor House, our eight room bed and breakfast, is fully air conditioned, offering a gourmet breakfast. We provide top-notch concierge services to help you plan for a boat tour, fishing trip, kayaking, jet skiing, biking, nature tours and bird watching. We can also help suggest some of the best restaurants on Chincoteague, not to mention where to find the delicious oysters we’re known for.
Take a respite from the heat and come to “America’s Best Beach Town!”
